Welcome to Web site of Hokkaido University Hospital!
I have been appointed as a Director of Hokkaido University Hospital (HUH) in April 1st 2013 and supposed to serve 3 years. I am feeling good tense to the facing three years since I am convinced that these 3 years are surely the revolution for HUH.
Hokkaido University Hospital (HUH) is supposed to reach to the next another century in couple of years. In its early time of foundation, HUH has greatly contributed as s local medical center and only one education center to provide with doctors to Hokkaido area. This important social responsibility is still one of the indispensable roles that our society and University requires to HUH. In other words, HUH has been born with local people and grown with local society.
However, HUH is facing an important pivotal point. Last year, we have been appointed as a core center hospital of clinical research. This center has just launched as a toddler. HUH is responsible to foster this virtual and toddler center to vigorous and sustainable one. The medical innovation is not a simple naïve dream. It requires many thoroughgoing preparations of seeds and establishment of personnel management system. Fortunately, HUH has a powerful background of Hokkaido University, one of the schools of historical tradition and has many promising seeds for medical innovation. We have additional novel responsibility to provide medical innovation to the World from Hokkaido. I am truly confident that his process will change HUH from the conventional Hospital to the “hybrid hospital” that is novel concept of a combination of routine medical care and additional advanced medical treatment/clinical trial to be globally sent.
The hybrid hospital concept is key word in the near future for the University hospital. However, for the patients, we do not have anything to change that our founders go toward. Patient oriented health care is an everlasting and universal goal in anytime anywhere.
HUH and all medical stuff are welcome all patients who are not native Japanese-speaking people. Hospitality and smile is, I believe, the global and borderless language for all patients in the world. All medical stuff in HUH are looking forward to taking care your health care.
